Desert Rose and Sage
"Western Skies" is a 6x6 in oil on a flat backed panel
I'll never get tired of our western skies, they are constantly inspiring me!
"Under Western Skies"
Written by - Frank Carleton Teck
"Now on the field the starry hordes appear.
And sow the glooming vault with crystal sprays,
Far Diamond treasures hung belike in praise of some fair astral
goddess drawing near. High in the opal north, as if in fear
The polar sentinel's pale face displays
The signal of the night, and all ablaze
With brilliant dyes the Evening star stands clear.
And now a beryl blush o'erspreads the east,
A cheering glow adorns the twinkling crowds,
The myriad eyes seem symbols of Delight
Like some fair queen parading to the feast,
Slow gliding up among the jeweled clouds,
Triumphant rides the Mistress of the Night!"
